State Dept. screens video views on democracy

The State Department on Thursday evening will screen the semifinalists of its Democracy Video Challenge, where contestants around the world explain in a three-minutes-or-less clip their definition of democracy. Check out a sample above.

It's the second year State has hosted the competition, along with partners YouTube, NBC Universal and the Motion Picture Association of America. The winners get to visit Washington, Hollywood and New York.

Last year's winners were from UAE, Zambia, the Philippines, Poland, Nepal and Brazil. This year, more than 1,600 people submitted entries from 111 countries. The semifinalists of the event will show their videos at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington.
